Last year at this time many of us were sayign because of the youth and length and athleticism we were expecting the team to get better all year, and be a better defensive team. Didn't happen. now we had issues, Welsh getting the nose injury, the China 3 etc. But largely the guys we needed to imrove on defense didn't, Wilkes, Hands etc. Remember we started 2 seniors and a junior last year, we thought we had that mix of experience and talented youth, but I thought we were a very selfish team last year.

Maybe that's because of how the Lonzo team the year before played, but we didn't play as a team last year and as a result we were never as good as I thought we could have been.

I don't think we handled adversity as well as we should have. Now we have 3 missing players again I hope we handle it better this year.
